You And The Night review

Ooh! Aah! Cantona at the cinema!

Evoking François Ozon’s Sitcom (1998), Yann Gonzalez’s debut is a subversive, stylish, perverted parlour game, as a young couple host an exclusive orgy for four guests: ‘The Slut’, ‘The Star’, ‘The Teen’ and ‘The Stud’.

Chief among them is Eric Cantona’s monstrously endowed Stud; and if you’ve ever wanted to see the former football legend whipped by Béatrice Dalle before enjoying his own Dirk Diggler-style reveal, this is your chance. The story gets tiresome, but there is an anarchic sensibility on display, bolstered by M83’s score, that suggests Gonzalez is going places.
